8th Generation Starter Pokemon

Thank you for printing this page from to come back to check for updates to this guide and much more content for Pokemon Sword and Shield

In addition to The Galar Region being revealed as the location where the 8th Generation will take place in the March 2019 Nintendo Direct, the three Starter Pokemon for Pokemon Sword & Shield were also shown. The Grass Starter Pokemon for games will be none other than Grookey, the Chimp Pokemon that is said to be full of endless curiosity. The Fire Starter Pokemon will be Scorbunny, the Rabbit Pokemon that always seems to be bursting with energy. And the Water Starter Pokemon will be Sobble, the Water Lizard Pokemon that likes to timidly hide among water.

Like all previous Mainstream Pokemon Games, players will have the chance the choose among Grookey, Scorbunny and Sobble in order to travel with through The Galar Region as their Partner. With their Starter Pokemon, players will be tasked with defeating all the Pokemon Gyms that stand in their way of ultimately challenging the Pokemon League, as well as defeating the Antagonist Group of the Galar Region. (Players will only be able to obtain the two Starter Pokemon they don't select by Trade.)
